Well...I have never before tried a recipe that wasn't already rated, but since I have this (misunderstood) obsession with anything Amish, I decided to try it. I had to make adjustments since I live over 7,000 ft.(incl. cutting out 6tb of sugar) The dough is VERY dry and crumbly. I had to form balls with my hands and press down. It created a dense but very chewy cookie. I didn't think it had much flavor (i even added cinnamon) but that could be because I cut down on the sugar due to the HA adj. I added an add'l tsp of liquid. Everyone else in the fam loved them though . They are more filling than the typical cookie, more cake-like. I will make them again, but up the sugar a little.
